collected insects as a child, fireflies, bees in jars and butterflies & moths with my father's fish net, then released them in the house. In 1999 helped a friend collect insects for his entomology project at Auburn University. It was then I learned how, and began to keep a collection. I am a FACT person and would rather have no answer than the wrong one. Work at home mostly preparing Turtle shells & skulls for our business the American Headhunter (natural bone skull supplier for colleges , museaums, etc...) Hate TV! Love outdoors! Would rather discover something new in nature than be given a diamond.
